Is there another expression for "I remember something" which sounds more like a native speaker or advanced-level English learner?

For example, something happened before and someone checks with me whether I know that thing. Would I say "I remember that" or some other better native expression?

    One can say 'I recall'. But the meaning is slightly different, sometimes misused by people who lie 'I don't recall' ; their meaning being 'I refuse to think about it.Memory and recall are slightly different things.

"From what I recall..."

Recall means "to bring back from memory; recollect; remember"; something I knew or learned in the past and I can find in my memory now.
