This is probably a dumb question. I've been using the theme since I started my blog. I also have the Genesis framework but have not used it as I like the customization of the Atahualpha theme without coding too much.

I'd like to have my home page set up something like www.thepioneerwoman.com.

I'd like to use the dynamic content gallery directly under the menu bars, then have the five most recent post excerpts with images show up under the DCG. Is that possible?

Then when people click on a post or an image in the DCG, it takes them to a regular "read the post and comment" page.

I guess what I am asking is if there is a way to widgetize the center area like you can in the thesis theme. Thanks so much!

sure you can. if you are on 3.7.1 you need to edit index.php and add the new widget code above teh line
HTML Code:
	<?php while (have_posts()) : the_post(); $bfa_ata['postcount']++; ?>
if you only want the widgets to show in the home page you could use somthingg like
HTML Code:
	<?php if (is_home()) { bfa_widget_area('name=center_area_above_posts'); } ?>
