First of all you need the Simplepie library. You only need the file included in the archive.

My example extracts 5 items from a recipe blog:

<div class="block">
	<h2>Latest Culinary Recipes</h2>
	<div class="content">
		<?php $feed = new SimplePie('');?>
			<?php foreach ($feed->get_items(0, 5) as $item): ?>
				<li>&raquo; <a href="<?php print $item->get_permalink();?>"><?php print substr(($item->get_title()),0,23);?> [...]</a></li>
			<?php endforeach; ?>

I have also included a substr() function to show only the first 23 characters in the title. It fitted my web site better.

Don’t forget to have the simplepie library included at the top:
