I think it's a simple solution but I can't seem to get my head around it.
On the Widget Area, I would like to display latest 3 blog post. I would like to achieve the result as below.
I have tried Genesis Featured Grid plugin but only shows 2 post.

In the example in your screenshot, Carrie is using the Genesis Featured Posts widget. She used CSS to have the posts display inline instead of stacking on top of each other. Hopefully that makes sense!

I am using Genesis Featured Grid plugin and tweaked the CSS a bit. It does achieve the goal but it's not perfect. I gotta find time to see if it's more of a hassle to tweak the CSS of Genesis Featured Posts than Genesis Featured Grid plugin.

Could you share a bit of wisdom about the CSS for this, it appears a little daunting at best. I've added the Genesis Featured Posts to the widget but can't seem to make the display show correctly, still displaying as single posts one after another. Working in a sandbox site, but haven't added anything to the theme that would change how the demo displays.
I am using the Parallax Pro theme and would like to have one of the non-image home page widget areas display a post grid. I've tried adding the Agency Pro grid into Parallax without success.
Having the same issues with substituting a slider other than a Genesis slider into the homepage widget areas, although Sridhar's tutorial works for the Genesis Responsive Slider.
My fallback would be a post grid page template that would link from the home page, but not my first choice since it adds a step for the viewer.
Thoughts and insights much appreciated.

As I mentioned, this is on a sandbox site, local so not able to URL to the site.
However, I think I've been able to resolve most of the issue, just trying to figure out how to add additional feature image sizes to the options in the Genesis Featured Posts and Pages widgets. The only setting coming up in the widget settings is for the WordPress 150x150.

If you add different image sizes to your theme's functions.php, they should show up as options in the Featured Post/Page widgets. If not, you could try installing the Genesis Featured Widget Amplified plugin, which replaces both Featured Posts and Featured Page with a widget that offers many more options.
