I'm sick of scrambled eggs, but can't deny their cooking appeal

I'm lazy, impatient, and space constrained. But I really like food. Which cuisine should I master?

I'd like to get into cooking but all my attempts so far have been defeated by one of three things:
Too much cleanup.
I can't stand washing dishes, so meals that call for 5 pans are eternally depressing.
Too much time.
Instructions like "now wait 2 hours" don't work for me. I like to be eating in under 30 minutes from the onset of hunger.
Too much equipment or too many special ingredients.
My kitchen is small and I'm probably not going to have a crockpot just for that one dish. I also prefer having a simple pantry with a dozen or so staples. Since each cuisine needs it's own set of spices and sometimes equipment, I'd like to focus mainly on one.
Is there a cuisine I can learn that alleviates some or all of these concerns? I like virtually all food (except italian for some reason), so go wild.
