Summary of this tutorial:

The first method we recommend is under Appearance, Menus to go to the categories on the left and add the category to your menu.

This will display the posts in a category the same as a blog page without displaying posts from a different category.

Our second method recommends using the plugin below:

Recent Posts Widget Extended

There are many options to this plugin but the one we recommend using is the limit by category and selecting the category you want to display in the widget.
