You need to use custom CSS to find the selector for that list in the sidebar widget:

I'm really stumped on this. I've tried every code I can think of - I'm not a coder. Any help with the actual CSS code would be appreciated.

Since that's a WP generated list, you really can't implement my earlier suggestion, however, you can replace that list with a variety of excellent plugins. Depending on whether you do or don't want thumbnails, you have a diverse choice of plugins to select from.
