Cook the way you normally cook.  Don’t change your cooking habits because of them.  Perhaps introducing taste/spices/etc into your food will do them good.

ETA: I know it’s hard because of your celiac’s (FI’s mother has it as well) so maybe just compromise a bit.  A traditional meal with a small twist to it.  Nothing too over the top.

It’s the exact same thing with my parents! No seasonings, everything mushy and bland.  I go the german route with them sometimes.  Last time I cooked for them I did potatoes, sausage, saurkraut, green beans, enough twist for me, but they could still stomach it. I’ve also found that beans and rice as a side to go over well… familiar to them, but can be spiced SO SO many different ways. Should all be gluten free too!

Roast Pork smeared with a combination of rosemary, garlic and olive oil, some kind of mashed potatoes or maybe au gratin type potatoes, fresh vegetables, maybe a salad, rolls and a delicious dessert .  Kind of old school but with flavor.  Bring them along slowly and you will be appreciated!   And, nothing they could not easily pronounce!  I talk from experience with family who have boring eating habits.

Lots of yummy and crowd pleasing Mexican food is also gluten free.
