By: Guest Blogger

It's been a delicious week at Canadian Living's headquarters. We made homemade almond milk then whipped together some chickpea salad. And we learned about our colons that wasn't really delicious, but definitely informative. Here's a recap of the most popular posts from this week, in case you missed them. mayonnaise-steps-600x600 1. Make your own mayonnaise You can of course buy mayo from the store, but why would you when you can whip up your own at home? Our Facebook reader Karen H shared that she never liked mayonnaise until she made her own homemade version. Colon=cancer-what-you-need-to-know 2. Colon cancer: What you need to know March is colon cancer awareness month, but just because March is over doesn't mean we should stop highlighting the importance of colonoscopies. Colon cancer isn't just a disease that strikes older people, more and more young people are being diagnosed with it in Canada. Our Facebook reader Mairi C shared that she was diagnosed with colon cancer at just 27! So don't avoid colonoscopies, especially if you have a family history of the disease.

How to make perfect baked potatoes To end our delicious week of food tips, we showed you how to make baked potatoes that are crispy on the outside and deliciously fluffy on the inside.
