Sidebard Widget Category ID Blog Roll Plugin

Hi can you please tell me what is the best widget to use in a side bar that will bring in snippets chosen category ID blog rolls along with their featured image thumbnail?

What are the best.

I want it to look like the sidebar blog roll on this page down on the right sidebar where it says Jims Recent Articles...

Moderated site link on request

The one on this site is included with the theme, so I need a plugin that can do the same and give the same look.

In some cases they even have several category IDs chosen for those blog roll snippets.

Please let me know my options.

Thanks!
