Peel and cube potatoes so that they are uniform in size.
Place potatoes in a large pot and cover with one inch of cold water.
Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to maintain a steady rolling boil. Cook until potatoes are tender all the way through (approximately 15-20 minutes). Be careful not to overcook or the potatoes will become too starchy.
Drain potatoes in a colander and return to pot.
Add butter and half-and-half. Mash with a potato masher until lumps are gone.
Stir in cheese, and then the garlic powder, salt and dried parsley.
Serve and enjoy!
