My friend and I are throwing my baby shower together.
And neither of us are really rolling in dough if ya know what I mean.
I was told by my mother in law that she provided cake and beverages, and if you wanted to order food it was at your expense.
Is this acceptable? Or would that make me seem super cheap-o and rude?

I say no- it can get pretty expensive for the guests (especially if they have the same type of income as you) if they have to provide a gift, and pay for their own food and drinks, I know I couldn't afford it. What about having the party at someones home and asking your friends to help out by bringing a dish to pass?? If you do decide to have them buy their own meal, make sure you let them know in advance.
