Budget Recipes:Cooking for 4?

I'm in need of some new recipes for my family. I'm looking for HEALTHY, EASY, QUICK & CHEAP! I need recipes that a toddler will like & that are also ok for an 8 month old. We make our own baby food from whatever it is we're eating. I need a vegetable in the recipe, they can be meatless. 30 minutes or less is preferrable. & VERY, VERY cheap! ;) Please do not post recipe websites. I have plenty of those that I visit. I'm looking for recipes that you've actually used! Thanks ;))
