Pulling blog content onto a Home Page

Hello,

A client selected a theme that does not have a feature that automatically pulls blog content onto the home page.

What plugin or practice do you recommend to do this in a visually appealing and effective manner?

It does provide a format to pull portfolio items. Perhaps the code can be altered to pull posts instead?

Thank you!
