Sandra Lee deserves some rest.
Last week, the celebrity chef successfully had a double mastectomy, not long after announcing she was diagnosed with breast cancer.
Now, she's having some much needed R&R, relaxing at home with her boyfriend, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo.

She posted this photo to Facebook (above) of their calm Memorial Day, lounging around with her parrot. She captioned the sweet snap:
"Home after a long week in the hospital, so happy to be in my own backyard. There is no place like home!"
Earlier on Monday, her team shared a photo stressing how excited she was to leave the hospital and head home!
Today is an exciting day! Sandra is going home to Lilly Pond with her sister Kimber and Governor Cuomo. She is most excited to sleep in her own bed — and see Phoenix and Halo when she wakes up!

What a relief!
Sandra Lee is officially out of surgery!
The celebrity chef's team announce on Facebook Tuesday that she's at the hospital with her boyfriend, Governor Andrew Cuomo:
It's been mere days since Sandra Lee announced her breast cancer diagnosis and now the celebrity chef is forced to reschedule her double mastectomy due to a NASTY respiratory infection. Poor thing!

Though it hasn't been an easy journey for the TV personality, she has turned her own battle into a platform for early detection awareness.
Fierce! Remember ladies, it's never too early to have a mammogram!
Nonetheless, Sandra's longtime love and N.Y. Governor Andrew Cuomo has vowed to be by the blonde beauty's side.
Thankfully Sandra Lee is a stickler for routine mammograms, otherwise her doctors could've detected the breast cancer a little too late.
The celebrity chef opened up on Tuesday morning to Good Morning America and revealed she was shocked after hearing the cancer news:
"Life can turn on a dime."
About two months after being diagnosed with cancer in her right breast, Sandra shared she will be undergoing a double mastectomy to avoid going through radiation.

Her reasoning for it:
People be hatin’ on Sandra Lee, but she’s having none of it!
The host of Semi-Homemade and author of 23 cookbooks has been called an elitist and out of touch.
"I think everyone needs to lighten up. Our job is to serve the overextended homemakers, our job is to make their life better."
She also addressed the people who criticize her for not cooking from scratch:
"The food world is something I know, and something I know top to bottom. People think I just know how to open a box or can. For the food purist, that's bad, and from homemakers, that's applauded."
We’re not sure where this criticism is coming from! Everyone has their own style of cooking — if you don’t have anything nice to say about Sandra’s style, go watch something else!
