TV Food Star Sandra Lee Home After Cancer Surgery

Food Network star Sandra Lee is recovering at home after being discharged from the hospital following a double mastectomy.

Lee posted photos to her Facebook page Monday showing her smiling and sitting with her pet cockatoo and her live-in boyfriend, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, in the backyard of their suburban New York City home.

Lee had surgery last week. She revealed her breast cancer diagnosis this month on ABC's "Good Morning America."

The 48-year-old "Semi-Homemade Cooking" star says she decided to talk about her illness to encourage other women to get screened for breast cancer.

Cuomo took some personal time to be with Lee after her operation.
