Titles and text for Ease theme front page

I am trying to add titles and text excerpts to the Edge theme front page. Currently, the theme is set up with just pictures. The Ruby theme is similar to what I’m looking for a front page, but the pictures are of a fixed size and on a strict grid. The Edge theme has variable picture size. It has a cleaner design.

Does anyone know how I can get post titles and some text excerpt (like we see on Ruby) in Edge? Preferably through code injection?
