I have two problems: 1) Will it seem as though she was named after me? (We have the same problem using Anthony even though its a family name on both sides.) 2) Will people understand why I like Elizabeth without having to explain the difference between a meaningful first name and a filler middle?

I think people who know your middle name would probably assume you are naming your daughter after you, but not everyone you or your daughter will meet will know your middle name so they don't have to know unless you tell them. If they know, however, I don't think it would be too hard to explain that you just love the name.
And honestly I don't think number 2 will be a concern because I don't think anyone will be thinking about that.

I don't know what middle name I would give her.

I always liked the idea of being called what I felt was a more mature sounding, Kate, when I was older but it never really stuck, I was too used to Katie.
I'm sure most people would assume that she was named after yourself, but when you think of it, most people (other than family) usually don't know or ask why you named your child such-in-such. When you tell your friend that you are going to name a daughter Elizabeth after her then that is really all that matters.
