I can't get rid of the RECENT POSTS on my front page, and it's not in a widget

I can't get rid of the RECENT POSTS on my front page, and it's not in a widget that I can find. In fact, in some of the widgets, the placeholder text appears if I don't use it, and won't disappear unless I put fake TEXT in there and tell it to HIDE. But I really cannot find anywhere to turn off that RECENT POSTS in the front page. Thanks!
