What's the next step in going from cooking the most basic of meals to cooking things that are actually interesting and have variety, without falling into the deep end of meals that take hours to prepare?

The pandemic has finally forced me to actually commit to cooking pretty much every meal, which has been great. What's been not-so-great is that I'm a basic-ass cook who usually just cooks some meat in a pan and mixes with side dishes/condiments/toppings/etc. and the lack of variety is starting to become a problem.

I've gone on to try looking up new recipes and variants on my usual go-to's, but they're almost always "hand-craft this component three hours in advance" tier and I'm really looking to just add variety to what I do rather than going full cook here.

What's the next step in improving my cooking, and where do I start?
