I have a site at the main domain and then a blog at blog.domain.com. Any way to retrieve the latest post from the blog.domain.com and echo it out on the top of my home.php file?

Not really sure where to look, many outdated examples :X

Appearance >> Widgets >> Select RSS and enter any blog feed you want.

You can do it using the default rss widget in wordpress. Create a widget box to appear where you want through functions.php file in your theme.

or you can get jNewsticker from Codecanyon and enter the feed from the blog and copy the shortcode where you want it and change the css to match your theme.
